On August 23, 2013, Robert Eugene Vasquez, 36, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for the stabbing death of his neighbor, Bobby Ray Rainwater, Jr.  Vasquez had been told by his mother that Rainwater was a child molester, though actually he had been required to register as a sex offender for an offense that did not involve a child.  Vasquez attacked Rainwater in their mobile home park, punching him in the back of the head and then stabbing him until he was nearly decapitated.
